Recognizing and Rewarding Across Cultures; 4 Factors for Success

Recognizing and Rewarding Across Cultures; 4 Factors for Success
July 31, 2012 at 3:30 - 4:30 PM ET
Maureen Bridget Rabotin, Global Executive and Leadership Coach(Effective Global Leadership)
Cross Cultural Awareness is no longer a nice to know skill in today’s global workplace. To be truly successful, we need to go beyond learning about national cultural influences, and onto acquiring intercultural competencies that effectively recognizes and rewards employees across cultural and linguistic boundaries.

What are the 4 factors for successfully motivating and engaging employees and colleagues across linguistic and cultural boundaries?
•       Respect <hich starts with oneself. Being culturally aware increases our knowledge of ourselves, allows us to become more attentive to the cultural influences we bring to the table, and how we can adapt to better influence and align expectations of those we need to influence. Several different levels of culture exist within an Organization: national, corporate, functional and team cultures. As in any system, they can be leveraged or they can be challenging. Understanding how they come into play from simple project management to complex strategic planning is the foundation to success across all levels of culture.
•       Relationship: being mindful of how we create, maintain and add value to relationships Through initiative and competitive collaboration, we raise the bar both in who we are and where we want to go. Not only networking through hubs and webbing but developing those face-to-face and virtual relationships through teamspaces and time outs.
•       Recognizing emotions and energy through empathy allows us to create those connections that thrive during the highs and lows in today’s volatile and ambiguous environment. Uncertainty and complexity are here to stay. Simple recognition of efforts while framing the why of what needs to be done and when not how consolidates fundamental appreciation.
•       Rewards: using The International Profiler by WorldWork enables global executives to reward themselves and those who develop a global mindset while learning how to refocus their energy as challenges and opportunities present themselve. This developmental tool identifies a global mindset based on 10 qualities with 22 intercultural competencies for global executives.
